Immerse yourself in Chicago’s urban gateway to nature and science for free every week at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum. Illinois residents receive entry at no cost on suggested donation Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Illinois residents can experience the hands-on fun the Nature Museum has to offer. As winter rages outside, it’s always summer in the Judy Istock Butterfly Haven. Toddlers can enjoy early-childhood-focused programming at Museum Toddler Time, featuring a new theme each week and unstructured play time in the Hands-On Habitat. Live Animal Feedings also offer an opportunity to see animal experts feed our various species of frogs and toads live through the Look-In-Lab.
